Jay Electronica takes shots at Drake & J. Cole

Jay Electronica is the God of Hip-Hop. You might be the 6 God, but I am the God.

I’m sorry but J. Cole ain’t got bars like this. I’m sorry, whoever your favorite rapper is, they all know that I’m the God.

Jay Elect went off at a live show in London last night and Drake and J. Cole were in his crosshairs. Will this set off a response from either? Video below.

Drake “Energy” (Music Video)

UPDATE: A month-plus later, “Energy” is up on VEVO for all you non-Apple Music subscribers.

***

07.10.15: If you’ve followed Drake on the ‘gram you know that today was that “Energy” video drop date, only on Apple Music.

Accompanying the video though, Drake chopped it up with Zane Lowe (UPDATE: Rip of the interview below.) and announced the OVO Sound Radio Show, which will definitely play exclusives from time to time…

Tonight at 3PM PST / 6PM EST

The Weeknd & Drake chart updates

Lumping this milestone news together for Toronto’s finest today.

First, The Weeknd has the #1 song in the country! Would you have believed that in 2011? “Can’t Feel My Face” tops the Hot 100 this week and I suspect the run will at least ride through the rest of the summer.

ICYMI: My thoughts on Weeknd’s headlining Lolla performance

The other accolade goes to the city’s top dog, Drake, who has the first platinum album of 2015. 1 million copies sold… and this is after the initial rush got it for free back in February. Quite the accomplishment that Drake also dapped up on social media tonight too.

Platinum off the tape. Views up next. Thank you once again. ๐Ÿ’ต๐Ÿ’ท๐Ÿ’ถ๐Ÿ’ด6โƒฃ

Meek Mill directs more lines at Drake

Meek Mill, fresh off saying he’d give VO a “wedgie” at his last concert, followed that up with more lines directed at Drake.

Did five months, came home, that’s perfect timing / To make a sucka nigga look sucka without trying / If Quentin Miller wrote that shit, what were we buying?

Plus, Meek exhibits some transphobia in his hometown of Philly:

“N****s turn to hoes, Caitlyn Jenners turn to Drizzy Drakes.”

Video below, yawns across the board. OVO Fest put the nail in the coffin, yeah? Moving on…

OVO Fest Recap: Drake roasts Meek Mill, brings out Kanye, Pharrell, Skepta, Future

Live updates comin’ in from Toronto as the expected star-studded OVO Fest affair is going off without a hitch… and going on with a bevy of guest stars.

Widely expected surprise/not so surprise guests Kanye West, Skepta, and Future all appeared. (UPDATE: Pharrell too. Didn’t expect that one!) The former sounds like he had his own concert within Drake’s concert, in fact. Andย to top it off,ย Drake roasted Meek Mill with a slideshow of MEMEs. (I led it off above with my favorite, and I’m sure there’s more.) Theย tweets/clipsย below, to be updated throughout the night. At posting time, Kanye’s set is still going on. Wow. (UPDATES on the top now as the fest closed with “Know Yourself” and apparently “Back To back” again.)

Raptors reveal new jerseys at OVO Fest

The subscript to OVO Fest was a cool tidbit of NBA news as the Raptors let their ambassador reveal their new away alternate threads. Drake went with the free agent signee/Toronto-bred Cory Joseph, who undoubtedly chose the number 6 for his hometown. The OVO colorway has always been a hit and translates well to the jerseys, which will likely translate well to the court too. Probably Philly’s the best, ha! What another checkmate move that’ll be for Drizzy.

Below you’ll see him rockin the threads and above, all of the options the Raptors will have this year. The colors are tight but I’m not totally feelin’ the arched ‘Raptors’ and close spacing with the numbers. It makes me want last year’s unis back, in fact. But that said, the OVO one is gonna do some numbers.
